Finding the best gifts for university girls can be really tough sometimes. As a broke student, I can promise you that all gifts are appreciated, especially if it’s something we can’t afford at the moment or have wanted for a long time.
I’m going to share with you some of the best gifts for university girls that any of us would love to receive. They’re perfect for all occasions: Birthdays, Christmas, Graduation… doesn’t matter!
One of the best investments ever. Because there’s no cord you can use them for absolutely everything. I use to struggle to find my regular earphones in my bag and let’s not talk about the amount of time I spent fighting to unravel the cord.
Running from lecture to lecture, at the gym, doing my laundry… I love them more than I love my boyfriend.
It might not be a common gift, but it’s one of the most useful ones. As an international student, I feel like I’m never done packing and unpacking. My suitcases last me shorter than I would like to admit and I always go to Primark because let’s be honest, students are broke.
Whether you’re looking for a gift for an international or a local, it’s always handy to have more than one suitcase to go back home for the weekend.
P.S. Can this collection by Béis be more ideal?
3. Cosmetic case
I swear Béis are not paying me for this, they’re just SO amazing.
This case has literally changed my life. I have a whole lot of makeup and it was a nightmare to carry it around when going to visit the in-laws or going back to Spain. All the different compartments allow me to separate the makeup from the creams and hygiene products, no more “my foundation has ruined my serum” drama.
4- Slow cooker
Another of my big discoveries this year. I wasn’t a good cook till now, and I am definitely still learning.
Before trying actual recipes, the slow cooker was my best friend and one of the best gifts for university girls. Chuck in some meat or fish with sauce and let it cook alone for hours whilst you do your homework or weekly readings. It’s also much healthier because you won’t be frying anything.
5- Airline Gift Card
This is an excellent graduation present. We all have the dream to travel before looking for a full-time job and kind of settling.
Gift cards are amazing gifts for students who love to travel. For internationals, a present like this means visiting our families for a weekend without affecting our budget.
6- Recipe Books
If you are a student reading this, let’s face it, you can’t survive on pasta and rice for your whole degree. Cooking is not that hard and can be really good fun if you do it with friends or your partner.
This book was the one I used when I started. It has cheap, fast and healthy recipes really easy to follow and with just a few ingredients. A must in every student shelf.
7- Cute speaker
Student life is synonym of partying – a part from studying, obviously – and whether you’re the host or a guest, having a speaker with you is always handy.
And if it’s cute and pink like this one, even better.
8- Polaroid camera
Perfect for those uni scrap books, polaroid cameras are esencial for selfie lovers. I literally have a wall full of pictures with my friends back home. I got it for my 18th birthday and it comes with me everywhere.
This one with the little mirror is perfect for selfies.
Next thing in my wishlist is this smartphone projector. It promises to be really easy to use and I can’t wait to watch my favourite movies with my friends. Sleepovers get to the next level with this.
10-Fujifilm Mini Link Smartphone Printer
This printer is perfect if you didn’t have your polaroid with you on that trip, but want your pics to have the same style. Also allows you to create cute albums saving a lot of money and giving it an 80’s vibe.
